Обзор смартфона Sony Xperia C5 Ultra

 

Большой смартфон Sony с хорошей фронтальной камерой – пытаемся определить достоинства и недостатки. Забегая вперед, можно сказать, что за свои деньги покупка неплохая

Аппарат получился довольно странный, как говорят, нишевый. Предлагаю вам посмотреть на плюсы и минусы устройства. Вот достоинства:

Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual Review

 

Selfies are all the rage right now and Sony seems to understand that better than most other companies. The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra is the successor to the Xperia C4 that came out earlier this year. Like the Xperia C4, the Xperia C5 Ultra is also a...

Great Bezel-Less Screen; Good Sunlight Legibility; Excellent Front Facing Camera; Good Rear Camera (In Well Lit Conditions); Good Audio Quality; Dual SIM with 4G LTE Support; microSD Card Slot

Low Light Performance is Noisy; No 4K Video Recording; Battery Life not Good Enough; Slightly priced on the higher side

The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra isn’t a perfect phone. The battery life is one of its main drawbacks and it is a large phone that might turn some people off. Its camera quality isn’t impressive in low light either. But it has a great screen, good audio...

Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual Review: A Big Screen Phone Done Right

 

Great overall performer ; Superb selfie camera

Runs Android 5.0 ; Not necessarily best value for money

Overall, it's hard to find a much wrong with the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual. It's amongst the best big screen phones we've come across. The phone was launched in India with a price tag of Rs. 29,990, though it is now available in the market for slightly...

Great for a mid-Tier phone

 

This is a wonderful android device with an excellent amount of features for its price range. Just remember this is not a flagship phone and does not claim to be. So if you are looking for flagship quality do not purchase this phone but expect to pay...
